Thousand Quarts of Nitro
In Magazine, Report;
Suspect Thieves
WICHITA, Kas., Sept. 12.
(AP) The Du Pont ponder -magazine
near Wichita Heights, a
small oil field town, nine miles
north of here exploded tonight,
rocking towns and Tillages with
in an area of 50 miles. All lines
of communication with Wichita
Heights were out of commission
and reports of expected casualties
and damage were not immediately
JackO'Flaherty, manager of the
Du Pont Powder company here,
said approximately 1,000 quarts
of nitroglycerine were stored in
the powder magazine. The maga
zine was in an isolated spot about
half a mile from Wichita Heights.
Approximately 125 oil field
workers and their families lire in
Wichita Heights. Reports receiv
ed here said several persons had
been dangerously injured, but not
deaths had been reported.
All available ambulances here
were dispatched to the scene pi
the explosion.
Thieves Possibly
Responsible, Word
O'Flaherty said he had receiv
ed mumerous complaints recently
that persons had been stealing ex
plosives from the magazine and
he expressed belief someone may
have kicked over a bottle of nitro
glycerine in the powder house.
The explosion, persons who
went to the scene reported, ex
cavated a hole in the earth 20
feet deep and 30 feet ini diameter.
The force of the blast tore down
all telephone lines in the neigh
borhood and windows in nearby
farm houses were shattered.
Searchers found bits of metal
scattered around the pit of the
excavation leading to a belief a
motor car may have been blown
to pieces. No bodies were discov
ered. Officers advanced a theory that
thieves after robbing the powder
magazine may have deliberately
touched off the remain explosives
to cover traces of their theft.

As Proescutor

thoroughly mastered the elements
of law, and his rich endowed in
tellect enabled him to discern the
truth from the false, and sham
from the sincere. He was there
fore, a successful prosecutor. Ho
prosecuted, never persecuted.
"As a circuit judge he was de
liberate, practical and tactful. His
understanding of human nature
enabled him to weigh evidence
with discrimination. He hesitated
not to rebuke crlma and wrong

his kindly sympathetic nature al
ways influenced him to temper
justice with mercy. He had the
courage to do his whola duty,
however distasteful.
Career on Supreme

Governor Norblad Friday aft
ernoon. Judge Kelly is well known
in Salem, having served as judge on
the circuit bench here and in Linn
county which comprise the third ju
dicial district since 1911. His ap
pointment leaves a vacancy on the
circuit bench which must be filled
by the appointment of the governor.
No intimatien was given out by the
governor's office as to who would
be named as circuit judge. It is an
ticipated in Salem that some Albany
attorney will be selected since the
district is a joint district and Mar
for the remainder of the Mc
Bride term. The appointment
of Judge Kelly U regarded in
local circles as one which will
meet with the approval of the
republican state central commit
tee which has the ta$k of nomi
nating a candidate f$r the va
cancy. Should Kelly be nomi
nated and elected, he will then
complete the McBride term of
two years.
